A season in Hell – would that be unchanging or always changing? Stasis and flux, consistency and excitement. I suppose both are divide, both diabolical, depending upon the degrees. Is it that then? That hell is extremes and heaven moderation? That never changing and ever-changing are the same with the opposition being sometimes changing, sometimes staying the same? It certainly is both Buddhist and Aristotelian. Hell is inevitability, and thus the lack of choice that is implied with a constant. One MUST change, one MUST stay the same. Being able to say "I do this by choice" – that is divine.
